September weather included hot days and rainy days, yet new art continued to be installed and taken by local art creators and patrons. The gallery received a lot of positive comments from people walking by who always look to see what’s new, sometimes taking an item, sometimes adding one, but mostly in the spirit of appreciation.
After a few days of hard rain, it became apparent the roof caulking wasn’t enough and there was standing water in the gallery. Again. So much for ‘weathering future storms in style.!! I ran out at 3 a.m. to put a baking sheet on the roof!!! Hopefully, that copper sheeting will arrive and I’ll figure out how to best attach it (fingers crossed).
Here are the items I was able to photograph before they moved to new homes. Unmarked or illegible items are unkown artist (UKA):
It’s been a month with lots of positive comments from people walking by!!! They all appreciate the whimsy and beauty the Free Little Art Gallery brings to their daily walks. Several artists from out of state have mailed artwork to offer in our neighborhood gallery…. how much fun is that!?
We had LOTS of rain with wind at times, and there was water in the gallery!!! The small bench’s wood glue dissolved, and some art on paper got a bit curly. The gallery’s been dried out, caulked, and a copper roof has been ordered. The bench has been re-glued, and the gallery will weather future storms in style.
Remember, when you take items, it leaves room for new ones to be installed!!
Here’s what’s currently installed or has moved through the gallery the past month:
MAY THE FUN AND JOY CONTINUE. THE WORLD THRIVES ON GENEROSITY!!
